    After watching today’s episode, I would be surprised if Ash gets either Sobble or Grookey.

    The tournament climb set up at least explains why Satoshi would need a lot of strong Pokemon quickly, he can't start climbing through the elites with nothing but Pikachu + starters and route 1 birds. We might see a high level battle with Pikachu, Dragonite and Gengar/Mr. Mime soon. Grookey/Sobble/Riolu can be developed against a rival first or something.

    I found out the reason of the fossils being mismatched is because they're based on the Crystal Palace Dinossaurs.

    Maybe Ash will just go straight to Corviknight then? Capture it in a Max Raid Battle with G-Max Pikachu?

    Also, Ash should bring his reserves back too for this. At the very least Charizard, Greninja, Sceptile, Infernpape, etc. maybe even evolve a few like Totodile and Gible?

    If he does get one of the starters, or Riolu, the Pokeball and Great Ball ranks are the prime moments to give them spotlight without it looking like an asspull.

    I imagine Master Ball is Elite 4 and above, which is huge jump in power for Ash.

    Just take them do some raids and fill them with candy.

    In the anime they usually make it about the trainers experience, like Go's Scyther didn't come off as weak, Go did.

    I just hope they don't stunt his Pokemon this region, aka if he gets first stages evolve them all the way.

    Thank goodness Go caught Skwovet, it gives me hope that he will catch a Rattata.

    That's not really true. He already owns some powerful Pokémon.

    I don't think that he's getting any of the Galar starters at this point.

    Well, he can.. I mean Infernape went from Chimchar to Infernape with Blaze that is stronger Pikachu in DP and we all know that Pikachu in DP is stronger than AG who defeated Regice. So they could easily. Or Talonflame who went from got beat by Vivillon to beat Avalugg.
    Same way can happen here with Grookey and Sobble( and Rookidee). I would like to see Ash train Pokemon and evolve them and not to already have OP Pokemon from start, hopefully Dragonite or Gengar are last and he catches two starters and bird( BTW I think Mr Mime will be more like for Sakuragi household so, technically Ash has only 2 Pokemon on hand. So if he catches Gengar and those 3, it'd be full team and MR Mime would be like 7th Pokemon(like still in battles and everything but lesser Pokemon than his 6)..

    We all know he won't use them though. I'm saying he has to catch new strong Pokemon because the writers won't let him just bring back the old ones for whatever reason. I don't like it either but it be what it be

    (lol I edited too slowly, well you got it anyway)

    You're probably right. It's a shame though.

    It depends on how strong the writers wanna make his opponents and how realistic they wanna be about "power levels". If he's gonna face Elite 4's in the tournaments sooner rather than later it wouldn't really make sense to only have weak looking Mons besides Pikachu.

    I mean Fletchling and Chimchar battling against opponents that beat Pikachu in the gyms didn't make sense either so of course he CAN use Grookey or something in a tournament, and he probably will, but from the looks of it the writers don't want ALL of his Mons to be like that. We got Pikachu, some strong newbies and some classic newbies.

    So if Ash gets Gengar I hope that's the last Kanto Pokemon he gets. I'm curious if the other regions will also get 3 or if Kanto/first installment favoritism means it'll get the most captures (aside from maybe Galar)?

    CMButch Kanto is love. Kanto is life.

    I mean if Froakie can go below gym level to E4 level in one saga(A-G), why wouldn't for example Grookey-> Thwackey -> Rillaboom -> Gigaboom( E4 level) for example.
    He has so far in his possession 3 at least high FB level Pokemon which are Charizard,Sceptile and Infernape. I said so far because they didn't appear in anime so we don't know if they got stronger like BW Charizard is to BF Charizard), they probably are , but problem is writers are not giving them chance. I mean if they return: they would all be at least low E4 level( if they got stronger than in DP and BW), now imagine them Dyna/Giga(Gigazard) which would be much stronger than that and Charizard would be much stronger than them( because Giga> Dyna).

    I don't think A-G will return though...
    As of other two candidates which are Snorlax and Incineroar, they're not as powerful as Chari,Scept and Infern, but with at least Snorlax with Giga would be E4 level or something.
    (This is all unless Pokemon he catches here in PM are stronger than them, liek Dragonite can easily be stronger than Charizard, I hope not because Charizard literally had to train and Pikachu had to travel with Ash for 20 years to achieve their power and here comes Dragonite to be stronger than Charizard.(Greninja at last had A-G). Only way I can see it being stronger than Base Zard is by Dynamax( and that Dragonite works hard.. as seeing he's just hugging things, hopefully he picks up the pace).

    I hope at least in Isshu he doesn't capture much he has a lot, just evolve the ones he has, make a trade episode with Go so he can get Gigalith (still waiting for GF to retcon trade evolutions).

    They haven't been bringing back the old mons, but with more and more info about this WT is revealed this is the series that it makes sense for them to come back, that and the fact that is a series spanning all regions.

    Go's capture prediction:

    I say give him Chandelure and call it good. Or don't give him anything more from Unova.

    However, I fully support him getting more from the other regions that aren't Kanto/Unova.

    In Sinnoh aside from Lucario I could see him getting Rhyperior (because KANTO).
    In Johto Tyranitar and Houndoom. I want to say Espeon, but I want to see if the DLC will include a Gen 8 Eeveelution.

    This series would be perfect in finishing off any leftover development the previous teams needed.

    Sure he can. They can be strong enough for the top ranking trainers if they fully evolve and get Gigantamax forms

    I'm going to throw in the idea of ash bringing in Kingler to Gigantamax for a battle or 2, because why not.

    Also disappointed Go is the one who got Skwovet. Hopefully he uses it a little since it's a Galar pokemon.
